Discussion post in PHIL&101 in response to student asking, “If there are moral truths, should everyone believe them?”
There is a sense in which everyone should believe and abide by truths. The goal of rational inquiry is truth. But people face all sorts of obstacles in getting at the truth and even those who make their best efforts often miss the mark. So perhaps people aren’t always blameworthy for failing to appreciate moral truths.
But then there are issues where folks ought to know by now.
